Default Looking for an Aerocatch co-buy

I'd like to get a set of aerocatch latches for the car, however, since I live in a less than desirable city the locking latches are border on necessity.

Now for the co-buyer part.

I find the double locks incredibly redundant - if someone wants your **** the second lock will not deter them. I'm just looking to prevent lazy-mans theft or tampering.


I'm looking to buy two sets, one locking, one not and I'm hoping someones interested in splitting the cost. The the locking set comes with two keys so it should not be a problem - just don't lose it.

Straight 50/50 cost split, I won't embed my shipping costs - you just pay for shipping from myself to you. Final cost will be determined if anyone shows any interest.

any interest?

Yous should probably include how much the cost will be from wherever you are planning on order them.

I just bought the non-locking flush plus aerocatch for under $65 shipped:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWNX%3AIT

They sell the locking ones for $20 more ($85 shipped):
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/UNIVE...Q5fAccessories

So, if it costs you $5 to ship one to me, and I send you $10 (splitting the $20 difference) plus one non-locking aerocatch, you're only saving $5. Is that really worth the hassle?

Why not lock one since you're too busy and important to take an additional 6-seconds to lock the other side?

If I was looking to do it for monetary reasons then yes - it would be stupid.

I simply find the two locks redundant - from a mechanical, visual, and usability standpoint.

Cause I've got a thing for asymmetry.
